    You need to start with watching some "lathe accident" videos on youtube, that should give you some respect for the machine:eek:. Way back in school my choice was the little SB with slipping belts, or...

    Without a pic of said machine, and a pic of what you want to lift, its pretty hard to form an opinion.

    If you have a UPS account, and depending on volume, you get better rates than an individual will find online. With USPS, if it fits in a flat rate box (up to 70 lbs on med/large boxes), it ships for...
